I think we have a micro-gang here! Dobson/Warner.

We'll have to call for an evening meetup after the holidays to discuss some ride options.

Happy Holidays!
That sounds perfect.

I'm pretty much as well-versed in the local ride options as the evening meetups out this way...

Experienced rider on a well-equipped DR650, but riding solo and not really looking for gnarly single-track.
TIA - any help is greatly appreciated.

January is going to be cold and poss snow and ice in any of the high country. Jump off at Florance and make your way South of phoenix.

Find your way to Maricopa then take 238 aka Dead Cow Rd to S Komatke Rd. AKA Pipeline. That will take you to 85 go a little west from the highway to old 85 then pick up Salome hwy, to 355 av north under I 10 onto Aguila rd to Vulture mine rd into Wickenburg.

I'm is Mesa near Baseline and Signal butt. I'm from Washington state, I'm here for two weeks to visit the folks and of course ride. I have a 2010 GS and WR250. I have the WR with me on this trip. Last year I hooked up with Bill, Paul and Ricardo (and others) and we went on two great rides. I hope to hook up with those guys again. When I ride alone I normally do the Apache Trail/Roosevelt lake or the Young area, however I've been all over the place. Anyway, if any of you want to go riding let me know. I have a few things I need to do for the folks but I can get loose in short order. Ron 509-969-4999

Probably talking about the Antlers. Look also for Alice's Restaurant in Young. Farther north, same side of the road up on the hillside. Tiny place, nice lady, not open all the time though.

I think those places are in Young, I'm wondering about the one South of Young on the gravel road. When I departed last year I came out at Punkin Center. So it's like the Punkin Center rd and 188 or 288. It was a real surprise seeing a restaurant/bar that far off the beaten path.

Closer to Punkin Center end? Punkin Center bar? Butcher Hook? There is one other right off the hwy, but that isn't off the beaten path at all. You got me on this on. Good luck!

You're probably referring to Butcher Hook.

I found the restaurant but it was closed. Drove all the way to Young, every place there was closed too. I guess I'll have lunch in Payson.
